the card text actualy says " when serra avatar enters graveyard " so yes it does enter the grave yard, however it does not stay there long enough for any spell to be played. my question is if you have a card like life line or rememberance in play, which effect would take presidence? could you imagine sacrificeing her to life chisle/diamond valley/worthy cause to double your life, bouncing her pack into play with life line and re-doubling your life with the chourus in the prosces? scary thought if it works

To Kith - I bet you're not playing with a single creature in your deck, if you're saying that this is bad because of the existence of Path to Exile. Name a reasonable creature that can survive a Path. Darksteel Colossus? - no chance. Akroma? - still gets exiled. Progenitus? - come on, anyone can say that! Progenitus still dies to Wrath of God and Final Judgement.Serra Avatar is really, really frikken awesome. Give it lifelink (Armadillo Cloak/Behemoth Slegde) and double your life total with every swing. This also works nicely if you have an Ageless Entity and/or Cradle of Vitality :P

This is an amazing card with a ton of combo potential, but there sure are a lot of people confused about what can and cannot be done with this card. Serra Avatar never, ever goes to the graveyard. This means you cannot Skull Fracture/ Exhume it. This also means Cinder Cloud will not deal your opponent any damage.. Now as far as this Repercussion/Terror combo Repercussion says when a creature is dealt damage, Repercussion deals that much to the creature's controller. Now look at Terror. It destroys the creature but doesn't actually deal it any damage. This means no damage from Repercussion, and no dead opponent.

Good for any white, white-black, or white-green life-gain deck. If you can play it right then you can destroy and regenerate this card a few times and (depending on if your life gain deck is any good) have a HUGE amount of life. In my opinion the best 2 types of lifegain green or white

I typically use Noble Purpose, Spirit Link, and Armadillo Cloak. Using Noble Purposes and Spirit Links and 2 Serra Avatars, against a Goblin/Patriarch's Bidding deck, my life actually multiplied by 10 every time I attacked, bringing my life total all the way up to four TRILLION something, before he finally gave up. My Armadillo Cloaks were all at the bottom of the deck. ^__^ True stroy

sorry buddy, exhumes a sorcery and by the time you use it, serra avatar is back in your library. You can corpse dance her for a first turn kill if you can play some sort of mox or something.

ura shards, fling , bloodshot cyclops & a real killer combo of sneak attack , weatherseed treefolk & alter of dementia! what do ya get boys ? well for every red i can sneak in a weatherseed treefolk sack it through the alter to deck opponent for 5 cards & put treefolk back in hand ! also the avatar is killer for decking someone through alter because the avatar gets shuffled back into library & possibly if one had a wordly tutor get it back! oh also priest of titiana , karmic guide, seething song thorn elemental, tornado elemental work well!

derek hopkins: You should try reading the card before you post a review.When Serra Avatar is put into a graveyard, shuffle Serra Avatar into owner's library.it wont work in a reanimation deck.However, A very sweet combo is Serra Avatar / Quicksilver Amulet. Bring in the avatar very early on.

This card shows you the true extent of the power found in the Urza's Saga expansion. Combine it with a Sneak Attack, for even more fun. And what about a Spirit Link? The only drawback is mane, and any good player can come up with that...

Put this in a life gaining deck with black to have some diabolic intents and it will always be by your side. Also use spirit link for some huge life totals and then it just gets bigger and bigger.

Great combo here: Red/White Astral slide. Play the avatar. Use slide to remove it from the game, drop dimensional breach. Your avatar comes back as the only permanent on the board. Beautiful combo.

Some guy I know gave me one. He was leaving town and just handed me this because I had hooked him up with some other stuff. Pretty sweet card. Its the only creature in my oath deck, so you kinda get the point =)!

who's the moron that gave this card a four? This card fits into so many combinations, like with piper, sneak attack. Definitely one of the top ten cards ever made outside of the power nine.

Put a spirit link and pariah on it and raise it's power whenever your opponent attacks. Pipers better because it stays in play.

Good,but it could be better if it had flying as standard.Use it in gain life decks (Congregate,angelic chorus) or just use a worship

This is an icredable card (but sometimes is too expensive depending on how much life you have. If you make a green/white deck with heroes reunion and overrun this card is unstoppabble.

A great combo card. play it with an elvish piper on for 1 green mana in a green/white deck then put armadillo cloak on it ( +2+2 trample, and when it deals damage, you gain that much life.) So what you have is a giant creature with trample that doubles its power ever attack.

Undoubtedly one of the best cards in the game, especially in gain life/shadow decks... serra avatar & dauthi embrace together is nearly unstoppable

This is a beautiful card!! This card is needed in any life-gaining deck, that wants pure power. If you have more than one of these cards it good to have remembrance aroudn too, to bring her back as soon as ossible when she dies.

The only problem with this card is that everything revolves around it, making it easy to snipe or remove.

I use to be obsessed with this card back in the day, even more so when I just happened to have a magic deck on me and ran into Richard Garfield in Indianapolis, IN and had him sign mine. Not really the greatest card, but very cool none the less. My only problems with this card is it's 4WWW casting cost yet it is still a very vulnerable creature. I remember the first time I got 7 Billion life was by using this card with Mercadian Masques' Noble Purpose. Not the greatest card in the world, but a cool card none the less. 4/5.

Sure sure, great creature. Two problems: one, if you are near death, the avatar is useless. Two, it is too dangerous. Some guy with a red/ black deck can use repurcussion and terror. Game over. Go with Akroma or Avatar of woe. Much safer cards to play.
